The love story of Jlo and Ben Affleck is a Hollywood movie all by itself.

The two stars fell back in love earlier this year, after their first time around relationship didn't work out back in 2004, after two years together and an engagement.

This week, they appeared together on the red carpet for the premiere of Affleck's new movie, The Tender Bar. Looking more loved-up than ever, they kissed and embraced for the cameras on their way in to watch the coming of age film directed by George Clooney, in which Affleck portrays a fatherless boy's blue-collar worker uncle.

Over the past year, the couple have appeared regularly on the red carpet together, but have remained largely silent about their rekindled relationship.

Affleck recently told a newspaper, “You can write conjecture about it, but one of the harder lessons that I have learned is that it’s not wise to share everything with the world.

“There are some things which are private and intimate and have meaning in terms of their intimacy by dint of the fact that they’re not shared with the rest of the world.

"I’m more comfortable just learning to find a boundary between things that I want to share and things that I don’t. I don’t know if it’s good or bad...I know that I feel more comfortable having those healthy boundaries in my life."

Nevertheless, the A list couple are not shy about being seen together and celebrating their romance with actions rather than words, as they engage in red carpet PDAs.

Both have been married to other people since their first break-up. Lopez married waiter Ojani Noa in her Twenties, followed by dancer Chris Judd. She then married singer Marc Anthony in 2004, five months after her break-up with Affleck.

More recently, she was engaged to baseball player Alex Rodriguez, but the relationship ended in April - just before she and Affleck publicly revealed their rekindled love.

First they postponed their wedding and now a magazine is reporting that

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have split up - at least temporarily.

The People magazine Web site, quoted unidentified sources as saying

Affleck decided he wanted out of the relationship, but it was not

certain if the break up will be permanent. The couple had planned to

marry on September 14, 2003, near Santa Barbara, California, but called

it off because they didn't like the media frenzy that was developing.

Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner, and they have three children together, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.

Married from 2005 to 2018, they are famed for their highly amicable, co-parenting relationship, and the family has even got together with Jennifer Lopez and her children, most recently on Halloween to go trick or treating.

Meanwhile, Affleck is a parental figure for J-Lo's daughter Emme, 13, and her twin Max whose father is Marc Anthony, and was spotted accompanying the mum and daughter on a trip to buy glasses for Emme last Friday.

The couple have been out and about lately, taking their blended family to a movie last week, and heading to an LA Lakers game together where they were snapped cuddling and laughing.

During November, Jennifer was away filming in Vancouver, but flew back to spend Thanksgiving with Affleck and the children.

Recently, Affleck told the Wall Street Journal that he feels “lucky” to have been given a “second chance” with the singer. He referred to their reunion as “beautiful” and a “great story.”

The couple initially split, it was reported, due to 'excess media attention.'

At the time, Lopez said it was her "first real heartbreak ...(at a) different time...who knows what could've happened."

It seems finally, they're now in that time.
